OFFICIAL What Are You Listening To? (WALT) Topic! (204)

Post by NeoJabez » August 9th, 2017, 2:05 am

Welcome to the OFFICIAL Christian Crew WALT Topic. (What Are You Listening To?)

NEW: The number of songs/videos in the playlist now featured in the topic title!


What it is:
Spoiler! :
The WALT Topic is where you, the members of our forums and community, can submit links to great Christian music videos to share in a curated playlist. Many of our members like to listen to music when they are playing games, doing homework, or just in the background while performing daily tasks.

The WALT Topic is going to be a curated repository of music (and videos) suggested and vetted by the membership and leadership of our community for everyone to enjoy!

What we mean by curated is that there will be one or more people who will take the suggestions offered and the links submitted, and they will listen to the songs and watch the videos, (vetting them for cleanliness and such), and will then add them to our rapidly growing playlist! Curators do NOT have to be leadership, but we DO prefer they are members in good standing. We haven't decided precisely yet on the standards or qualifications for the position, so in the meantime, we'll have leadership fulfill the role temporarily.


How to help:
Spoiler! :
Simply share the Artist and Title of good Christian songs you know...(And in most cases the Youtube link itself). At the moment, we aren't categorizing by genre inside the Christian umbrella, so our playlist might be, when shuffled, a miasma of metal, swing, pop, rap, and who knows what else? The method to this madness is that everyone may hear something new and excellent that they haven't heard before, and we will all be enriched by the new media! Anything done for God is potentially spirit-filled and fruitful!


General Rules and guidelines:
Spoiler! :
    We want all music to be Christian in some way, so...any type of worship music, or songs by recognized Christian musicians are acceptable.

    OBVIOUSLY, no cussing, nothing sexually explicit, nothing that expresses hate for anyone or anything, etc. (Hate or disdain for Satan is A-OK!)

    Please only submit the most official videos you can find. Meaning, if the artist/band has a Vevo or Warner Music link, any song labelled "Official Video", that sort of thing. We don't want homemade lyrics videos and the like, in most cases, because these are often taken down, or removed for copyright infringement, and we wouldn't want our playlist's links to become broken. (There may be occasional exceptions to this rule, these exceptions will be looked at by the curator/leadership on a case by case basis.)

    We will limit submissions to 2 songs per person per day. First, certain people might be very genre-specific, and we want a nice variety. Secondly, this helps keep the topic active; if you have more than a couple of suggestions, you can make another post tomorrow. We hope this will bring people back again and again.

    Please remember to add the artist and title of the song in text before or after your video link. This insures we can find the video in the case that the link doesn't work. In some cases, some videos are not available in some countries or the video may get moved or deleted at a later date. We can then go back to see what song was posted.

    Videos posted should only consist of one song and should not have excessive talking like interviews or be long in length. (Unless of course it's one of those rare super long songs.)

    If you have any sort of story to tell about the song(s) you are submitting, or if they helped you through a particularly bad spot, anything like that, you're welcome to share that as well.


_________________________________________________________________________________________________


More Information:
Spoiler! :
Don't forget you can REPEAT OR SHUFFLE the videos/music! Always keep in mind that these videos are not nearly all the media that the Christian Crew has to offer...We have a video playlist page right on our website, which has 8 different playlists with everything from Member Slideshows to Bible Studies! https://www.ccgaming.com/media/youtube-playlists/ as well as an MP3 archive, a Memorial Timeline, and more...All found in the Resource Section. https://www.ccgaming.com/media/

Thank you, everyone, and please enjoy the playlist! We expect it to grow by leaps and bounds, with your help! Just post away, right here in this topic, and watch this official playlist here in the first post get bigger and bigger and bigger every day!

If you have questions or would like to add suggestions, ideas, thoughts, or other information to this idea, please see the original first submissions thread, located at: viewtopic.php?f=20&t=23238&p=190932#p190932

*Special Thanks to DynamiteTiger for suggesting the thread, sharing his experience with building this type of playlist in the past, rules and engagement suggestions, and much more!


So, without further adieu...

Here is the OFFICIAL Christian Crew What Are You Listening To? (WALT) Playlist!

Love that this idea has been implemented! :D It's got me listening to some great Christian music I never knew was out there and has also sparked my love for some older Christian music I used to listen to years ago. With that in mind, here's a couple classics from Whitecross. It was the very first Christian concert I ever went to. Some of their songs got me through some rough times in my teens.

Whitecross - My Love


Whitecross - In the Kingdom

This is so great! I have honestly NEVER heard of Whitecross in my life, but that first song is like vintage late 80s rock! heh

Since we had a suggested submissions topic, separate from this one, I'm going to list the original 13 submissions, (as well as some I added) also, so that we all know those songs and their connections as well.

I'm adding a 'guideline': If you have any sort of story to tell about the song(s) you are submitting, or if they helped you through a particularly bad spot, anything like that, you're welcome to share that as well.

Michael - Your post edited. We need to be sure we add the artist and title to each link, so if links break, we have no problem finding replacements. Thanks. :)
